Revenant Bus brings a very slow kind of hell to Doom 2

October is Skeleton Appreciation Month, and few people appreciate skeletons quite as much as Doom modder Marphy Black. Through his mastery of Agitating Skeletons, he has posed deep philosophical problems, made us┬ácontemplate infinity and sometimes just punch a whole lot of skellingtons.

RPS despise Children. Yet - as aficionados of PC games with terrain - we love boredom. So we're a little conflicted on whether or not to link to the third yearly Desert Bus for Hope, which has been bumping along for over three days now.

Public Spirited Transport

We're late to this party, but we better link to it before they reach the final stop. To raise funds for the Child's Play Charity, seven brave gamers are playing the infamous Desert Bus Subgame from Penn & Teller's infamously unreleased Smoke and Mirrors. Playing it non-stop. In shifts. For days. Four days, eight hours and 54 minutes at the time of writing. This is…
